Romanticizing My Cooking

Bakso I have to admit that my love for cooking is growing. It's growing and I can't believe it myself. This feeling has been like this since probably two years ago. Before, cooking felt like a hard work that I had to fulfill. It still is, but the difference is I enjoy it now. So it does not feel like I am forcing myself.  Back then whenever I cooked, it's either wrong recipe or incorrect measurement. It never tasted right. So I gave up cooking just because I never found the right one. And then I started to feel that I wanna eat better. I don't want to just eat whatever, I want to know what goes into my body. If I prepare it myself, then I know it's good one.  I don't eat too much sugar, sometimes it is hard to buy one thing outside and has a lot of sugar in it. So cooking it myself will allow me to control the amount of sugar. So I found recipes and I tried to make them. As to my surprise, they taste right! Exactly how they should have tasted. That made me happy

7 and 2 hours philoshopy (Filosofi mendaki gunung)

Mendaki gunung lewati lembah... sungai mengalir indah ke samudra.. bersama teman bertualang.... #ost ninja hatori

Haha... well.. I wont talking about that sountrack. I will write about mountain and life. I think many people already think the same like me, it just I want to record it on my blog. Thats why i write it.

I never climb mountains like other climbers. Just a small one, and it already make me feel blessed being born in a very beautiful country. The real climbers always feel addicted to climb higher and higher mountains. I know that feeling. Like a challenge for them.

Its not easy to climb a mountain even climb the easiest one. There are always much challenge and trouble during climbing mountain. Need few days to hike some difficult mountain. A friend who just climb on Semeru mt told me that they need 7 hours to reach the top of mountain and only need 2 hours to going back down.

Layaknya sebuah kehidupan, can you imagine? What do you really want to reach in life? The best goal of your life? You must be have some right? Yeah... like the mountain climbers, they want to reach top of the mountain. To prove people that they can. Ok, dont say to prove to people, just for self proving. "I can get the top of mt". Thats enough for them. In life, there are people who dreams lots. Who struggling hard to reach that dreams. Up and down, hard and difficult, not even easy. Then the right time is coming. The time when you get the dreams, the things you really want it. You are on the top of the mountain of your life. What will you do there?? Protect it! Like the 7 and 2 hours of climbing. Need much more time to get your dream, but need a little time to lose it. If, you dont keep that dream alive and stay in top of your mountain.

When I was on middle high school, clearly remember, I saw a climber, he was taking the same bus with me, at that time I told to myself "why do they have to bring lots of things on their back just for climb a mountain and goin back down with an empty hands, just tired and its tiring I guess". Some people said the same like me. But now I realize that it is for self proving. They just dont want to be like common people. They want more in life. The things that only they know it. And now, I am a part of it. Tiring? Yes.. alot... But remember, Allah akan membayar semuanya sebanding dengan seberapa keras kita berusaha. Allah tahu dan Maha adil.

Mengenal Nyai, Eyang Buyut Orang Indo Kebanyakan

  Seperti yang pernah saya tulis sebelumnya tentang darah campuran Eropa, saya pernah janji nulis tentang orang Indo dan Nyai, nenek buyut dari para Indo kebanyakan. Sekarang kita liat definisi dari Indo sendiri. Jadi Indo (Indo-Europeaan atau Eropa Hindia) adalah para keturunan yang hidup di Hindia Belanda (Indonesia) atau di Eropa yang merupakan keturunan dari orang Indonesia dengan orang Eropa (Kebanyakan Belanda, Jerman, Prancis, Belgia). Itulah kenapa saya agak risih mendengar orang menyebut Indonesia dengan singkatan Indo. Karena kedua hal itu beda definisi dan arti. Sekarang apa itu Nyai? Apa definisi dari Nyai? Nyai adalah seorang perempuan pribumi (bisa jadi orang Indonesia asli), Tionghoa dan Jepang yang hidup bersama lelaki Eropa di masa Hindia Belanda. Hidup bersama atau samenleven yang artinya kumpul kebo, tidak menikah. Fungsinya nyai itu apa? Fungsinya diatas seorang baboe dan dibawah seorang istri, tapi wajib melakukan kewajiban seorang baboe dan istri. Karena mem

[Piknik] Prambanan lagi

Salah satu pesona Jawa Tengah adalah Candi Prambanan. Saya sudah 3 kali berkunjung ke situs warisan dunia ini. Candi yang terletak di perbatasan Jawa Tengah dan jogja ini selalu menimbulkan kesan mistis bagi saya. Terletak tak jauh dari jalan raya, sehingga mengunjunginya pun sangat mudah. Berbeda dengan Candi Borobudur yang letaknya sangat jauh dari jalan raya besar.  Ok, menurut saya ada 3 cara menuju candi ini. Menggunakan bus transjogja, taksi, dan kendaraan pribadi. Bagi yang menggunakan transjogja, saya pernah menggunakannya berangkat dari daerah kampus UNY, daerah Depok Sleman. 1 kali transit, 2 kali berganti bus. Dengan harga transjogja yang kala itu, 2014, seharga 3500 rupiah. Tapi sampai saat ini masih sama harganya, menurut info dari teman. Lokasi shelter bis berada agak jauh dari pintu masuk lokasi candi, mungkin kira-kira 500meter sampai 1kilometer. Kalau jalan, menghabiskan waktu sekitar 15-20menit. Bisa juga naik becak untuk opsi yang lain. Lagi-lagi, jangan lupa men
